Ask Dr. Ruth


The 2019 IDA Documentary Screening Series brings this year’s most acclaimed documentaries to industry insiders and film lovers as a series of curated film screenings through the fall season! Join us for a free screening of ‘Ask Dr. Ruth’ on Monday 10/28 at the Landmark Theater at 7:30PM.


‘Ask Dr. Ruth’ chronicles the life of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, a Holocaust survivor who became America’s most famous sex therapist. With her diminutive frame, thick German accent, and uninhibited approach to sex therapy and education, Dr. Ruth transformed the conversation around sexuality. As she approaches her 90th birthday and shows no signs of slowing down, Dr. Ruth revisits her painful past and unlikely path to a career at the forefront of the sexual revolution.


The free screening will be followed by a moderated post-film conversation with Director Ryan White and Dr. Ruth Westheimer herself, plus reception at Landmark Wine Bar.
